Our work outside of our patient care

Agilaflex Clinic's chiros, osteos & physios help break Guinness World Record
The team at the Clinic are celebrating after helping to break the Guinness World Record for the number of tandem skydives in one day. And in doing so raised £4500 for the Alzheimer's Society.

All of our chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists from the clinical team, alongside the operational team joined 160 other parachute jumpers at Hinton Airfield, Brackley on the 5th of July. Event organisers MGM Advantage paid for exclusive use of the airfield for the day to ensure that all money raised went straight to the Alzheimer's Society.

After a 7am start the previous World Record of 130 jumps was beaten by 2pm. With the final number of jumps being registered as a Guinness World Record of 160.

We are delighted to have been part of achieving this World Record. The skydiving was truly memorable. And the Alzheimer's Charity is close to the hearts of our team as many of them know somebody who has been affected by this disease. It is fantastic that our patients, friends and family have come out in support of our effort.

At the Clinic we have a brilliant team that works closely in providing care for our patients. So this has been a great opportunity to take time out from a busy clinic schedule and do something together outside of the Clinic.

Natalie Bettinson, Alzheimer's Society Community Fundraiser for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight added: 'there are currently 17,986 people living with dementia in Hampshire. Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain and can affect anyone. We are really grateful to the staff at Agilaflex Clinic for taking on this challenge and for being so enthusiastic about raising awareness for Alzheimer's Society. As a charity we rely on events like these to raise vital funds to support people to live well with dementia today and fund research to find a cure for tomorrow.'
